However, this is not the only accolade that Mark has received over the years. He has served for over a decade on the Executive Committee of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA). This position is another achievement demonstrating his leadership skills and experience in legal advocacy. While serving on the ITLA Executive Committee, Mark helped to advance legislation to ensure the rights of injured victims remained protected in the state.
